The Magical Gardens of Leaside – Saturday, June 22

by Leaside Garden Society

The June garden is alive with colour – and inspiration! You won’t want to miss the Magical Gardens of Leaside Tour on Saturday, June 22, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Hosted by the Leaside Garden Society, this year’s self-guided tour includes eight very special gardens and provides the opportunity to meet the gardeners, ask questions and learn how these beautiful spaces were created.

This year’s tour includes a fascinating cross-section of urban garden spaces including a wide variety of trees and flowering plants as well as vegetables and herbs. Attractive outdoor living spaces include special features such as a koi pond with waterfall, a unique Irish shed, a pergola built by the gardener, garden art and a Japanese “stroll garden”. A special addition this year is a new perennial garden at the Leaside Public Library, donated by the Society in 2012 along with a garden bench and planter to commemorate its 25th anniversary.

Passports, which include garden addresses and a tour map, are $10.00 each (adults and children) and are available from the following local merchants:
